I am so tired of using old fashioned boring white cards for the names on sympathy arrangements. Do you have any new and updated ways to feature names? I also hate old fashioned script. Any thoughts on how to update that also?
Cards for sympathy arrangements in the UK tend to be quite old fashioned looking with photos of flowers on them. I don’t do very much sympathy work but I actually prefer to use a plain white card with a thin black border – simple, classic and understated. I write the message with a good quality pen in black ink.

In the wedding industry there are dozens of extremely talented people creating personalized invitations and all paper elements required for a party. What about contacting some of them and explaining your dilemma? Maybe they might be interested in creating a series of sympathy cards for you.

I would suggest working with a local graphic designer. You can come up with a card that fits your brand. You could also work with a calligrapher or take a calligraphy class yourself.

I don’t really do that many sympathy designs, but when I do I make my own cards from handmade paper.
